I am search of a canoe that can handle both bay and surf fishing. I prefer a canoe as opposed to a kayak. Do I have to go metal? Thanks in advance for any information
I use a Mad River Malecite for that
But, launching a canoe in the surf isn’t something to take lightly. I figure you’re not a stranger to it, right?
I snapped a gunnel coming back in last year, on a very calm day.
it would be in minimal surf. basically good fishing days. getting out to the 2nd or 3rd sand bar is key
volume, flare, low sides, some rocker
… are what you should look for. There are others besides the Malecite that others may feel comfortable recommending. Is this for solo?
looking for a two seater
You’d love a Superior Expedition
http://superiorcanoes.com/ This will alow you to fish comfortable and not have a fear if the weather changes. It’s really made to big water like you’ll be on. Super Comfortable to spend all day in.
Why not a SOT designed for fishing?
Do you really want to sink?
